First Tulips

These brave souls are the first of what I am optimistic to see many more of this season.  Some animal has chewed the tops of a number of emerging tulip leaves in this particular east-facing bed.  I was sure it was voles, until we spotted a cottontail bunny just outside the fenced area.  They are not large animals, and are known to be able to squeeze through impossibly small openings.  The thought of one of these rodents in my flower bed had me checking around the perimeter for possible entrances.  Sure enough a small hole in the ground next to a walkway is my suspicion.  We’ve put all sorts of items into the hole through the years to fill it up, but the animals are wily and persistent.
